Exceptionally well done movie, very good storyline, excellent actors, good scenery, and it will keep your attention through-out. If you enjoy period drama, you will most likely love this one. 9/10

Well done Victorian era film, Christian Slater and Jared Leto give great performances, good storyline with a twist. The costumes and set designs are excellent. Worth a one time watch... 7/10

It surprised with originality in plot. Didn't expect it to be done so well. Perfect composition. Everything falls into place at the end like a puzzle.

I don't understand why they had to cast two such obvious American actors as the two main characters when there are so many British actors to chose from... that ruined the movie for me.

It was a nice movie, but there was just so much that could have been done! I don't know if it is the author in me but I just want to take this and create more to it! Only sad thing about that is all I have is my imagination to see these actors play it out. I thought the cast was a good one, Jared Leto is a good lead and I was impressed with his accent but I just wanted more! The trailer played up the drama but the drama was so bare. I guess for story potential: 6/10, acting: 7.9/10, the story executed: ummm....4/10 maybe a 5/10. There was just so much more and I'm really upset that it was just... basic.

Honestly, this movie did not make much sense. There were things that went on that did not need to go on and the characters did not have any follow through. I'd say the best part about this film is that gorgeous Jared Leto other than that, the story fell apart. Ok to watch at least one but don't expect some great script or execution. Movies with great potential are the worst when they fall flat as in this case. 5/10.
